100% uptime, security/safety, 24x7x365 support and a Tier IV Data Center rating; sound familiar? It probably does, since this is the type of marketing lingo most data center providers use to attract customers. These assertions are important; however, beyond technical support and physical security, how can you be sure your data center provider has all of the assurances your company really needs?

We’ve created a data center checklist to help you be aware of the key factors you should be thinking about when vetting your current provider, or looking for a new one.

Here are a few key points to keep in mind when you’re evaluating your current or potential data center provider:

  • Vendor stability
  • Capacity/scalability
  • Risk due to building location
  • Redundancy and resiliency
  • Full solution set
  • SLA

Download the data center checklist to find out the detailed evaluation criteria, and see how Expedient stacks up.
